Stripe Payment Gateway - Support for Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)

Expiration Date is now Available for the Software Subscriptions Assets

The expiration date for a Software Subscription is now available when you are viewing the asset record in BSS or in Storefront. The expiration date is loaded by calling Microsoft API and it's the date that you can see also in Microsoft partner center.

For viewing this field, you should first run the "Get Services Definition" action for getting the latest definition of the Software Subscriptions product type.

For your existing Software Subscriptions assets, you can get the expiration date by editing and saving the asset record. This action will refresh the expiration date by making the call to Microsoft API.

This field is also available in our notification engine for sending to your resellers or customers reminders for the expiration of their Software Subscriptions.

Software Subscriptions are now Fully Supported for Tenant Resellers

In this release we completed the migration and the back ordering mechanism for the Software subscriptions of a Tenant Reseller.

  • Transfer of Software Subscriptions assets during the upgrade of a Lite reseller to Tenant reseller. The upgrade process will transfer to tenant's BSS the Software subscription assets that exist in distributor BSS. The transfer will be performed by the  "Transfer Subscriptions" actions.
  • Propagation of Software Subscriptions assets to Distributor BSS (back ordering). Software Subscription assets that are created in tenant reseller's BSS will be propagated automatically to Distributor BSS. The propagation will be managed by the back ordering mechanism that is already used for the subscriptions.  For more details, please check Copying Reseller Assets in Distributor BSS.

Managing Software Subscriptions from Workspace

The Microsoft Subscriptions your resellers or customers have purchased are now viewable in Storefront's Workspace.
